Around the world, landfills are reaching their capacity. Decomposing waste generates methane, which is a potent greenhouse gas that causes global warming and climate change. When badly managed, landfills leach chemicals into the surrounding soil and water, posing a problem to nature and thereby our health. Restaurants can generate an enormous amount of waste which has grave impacts on their costs and reputation.
